You might all have noticed that I have released two now packages. Clam Antiivirus has been updated to 0.90.2 and Spamassassin to 3.1.9

I can see that ~2000 servers have picked up Spamassassin and ~750 Clam after 24 hours of availability.

Enjoy,
Jesper

Knuddi,

For some reason, I'm not picking up the update:  Per the USA.log:

Aug 28 09:44 USA :  SpamAssassin is up to date.
Aug 29 09:44 USA :  SpamAssassin is up to date.
Aug 30 09:44 USA :  SpamAssassin is up to date.

rpm -q | grep spamassasin shows:

spamassassin-3.1.5-1
spamassassin-tools-3.1.3-1

I checked that "Download updates and warn admin" is set in the SpamFilter panel.  I was hoping the upgrade would solve the issue of increased false-negatives lately (spamassassin seems to be intermittently scanning outside emails as determined by monitoring the message headers.)


Any thoughts?

You properly haven't updated the update paths in the database as was explained a while ago :-)

# export PRIMARY=http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/smeserver/contribs/swerts-knudsen/SpamFilter
# export SECONDARY=http://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/smeserver/contribs/swerts-knudsen/SpamFilter

#/sbin/e-smith/db swerts-knudsen setprop USAprimary url $PRIMARY
#/sbin/e-smith/db swerts-knudsen setprop USAprimary name ibiblio.org
#/sbin/e-smith/db swerts-knudsen setprop USAsecondary url $SECONDARY
#/sbin/e-smith/db swerts-knudsen setprop USAsecondary name nluug.nl

Then try to force the USA script to run and see whether you get some new stuff down :-)

Knuddi,

Nothing seems to have happened?  Here's the putty log:

Code: [Select]
[root@mail root]# export PRIMARY=http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/smeserver/contribs/swerts-knudsen/SpamFilter
[root@mail root]# export SECONDARY=http://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/smeserver/contribs/swerts-knudsen/SpamFilter
[root@mail root]# /sbin/e-smith/db swerts-knudsen setprop USAprimary url $PRIMARY
[root@mail root]# /sbin/e-smith/db swerts-knudsen setprop USAprimary name ibibio.org
[root@mail root]# /sbin/e-smith/db swerts-knudsen setprop USAsecondary url $SECONDARY
[root@mail root]# /sbin/e-smith/db swerts-knudsen setprop USAsecondary name nluug.nl
[root@mail root]# USA
[root@mail root]#

Is there a file / location / log where I can verify that something did / did not happen?

USA.log shows:

Code: [Select]
Aug 30 11:42 USA :  SpamAssassin is up to date.
Aug 30 11:45 USA :  SpamAssassin is up to date.

Arghh - I made a mistake...

The four db commands should set the "altiplano" entry in stead of swerts-knudsen..

ex.
[root@mail root]# /sbin/e-smith/db altiplano setprop USAprimary url $PRIMARY

OK... tried that:

Code: [Select]
[root@mail root]# export PRIMARY=http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/smeserver/contribs/swerts-knudsen/SpamFilter
[root@mail root]# export SECONDARY=http://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/smeserver/contribs/swerts-knudsen/SpamFilter
[root@mail root]# /sbin/e-smith/db altiplano setprop USAprimary url $PRIMARY
[root@mail root]# /sbin/e-smith/db altiplano setprop USAprimary name ibibio.org
[root@mail root]# /sbin/e-smith/db altiplano setprop USAsecondary url $SECONDARY
[root@mail root]# /sbin/e-smith/db altiplano setprop USAsecondary name nluug.nl
[root@mail root]# USA
[root@mail root]#

USA.log still reports that Spamassassin is up to date:

Code: [Select]
Aug 30 11:54 USA :  SpamAssassin is up to date.
/home/e-smith/altiplano shows as updated at 11:53:56 2007, so I believe that worked.

Are you using e-smith-USA-0.4.6-1.noarch.rpm?

# rpm -qa | grep USA

If not then install from:

# rpm -Uvh http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/smeserver/contribs/swerts-knudsen/SpamFilter/e-smith-USA-0.4.6-1.noarch.rpm

Knuddi,

This appears to have done the trick:

Code: [Select]
[root@mail root]# rpm -qa | grep USA
e-smith-USA-0.4.4-1
[root@mail root]# rpm -Uvh http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/smeserver/contribs/swerts-knudsen/SpamFilter/e-smith-USA-0.4.6-1.noarch.rpm

   1:e-smith-USA            ########################################### [100%]

I then received the email notifying me that there were updates ready to install and followed the instructions:

Code: [Select]
[root@mail root]# rpm -e spamassassin-tools-3.1.3-1
[root@mail root]# rpm -Uvh /tmp/USA/*.rpm

[root@mail root]#

I'll monitor to see if this improves the false-negative performance I've been having.

Thanks for all the help!

Knuddi,

I've been monitoring SA since I upgraded (thanks to your help) and while I am seeing a very sharp increase in the quantity of spam that my system is catching, I'm still seeing spam breaking through.  By checking the headers on the false-negatives, I can see that they aren't being scanned by SA at all.  I have noted that SA does not scan internal email on my primary domain at all, but it should be scanning all external and/or non-local domains, correct?

Currently, I'm blocking an average of 89.6% of inbound email based on my RBL config, so the performance is actually quite good.  I'm just curious if anybody else is seeing SA missing some emails altogether.
